United - Money Available

United - Money Available

Sir Alex Ferguson, and Man United fans, has been assured that there is money available should it be wanted.

Chris Smalling and Javier Hernandez already arrived before the summer for deals totalling around £20m and plenty of names have been linked with moves to Old Trafford this summer, although none have come off as yet.

David Gill, talking to The Manchester Evening News, has stressed that money is there for Sir Alex if he wants it: 'The money is there if we believe there is a player who can improve what we believe is a very good squad.

'The team has been together for a number of years and done very well. In order to improve it a player has to be of a very high quality.'

Gill wouldn't be drawn on targets but admitted that Sir Alex has been looking but admitted that at the moment the Man United manager is happy with what he has but new arrivals could still happen before the end of the transfer window: 'Over all I think Sir Alex is very comfortable with the squad composition. That's not to say something won't happen, but I think it is a 'might', not a 'will'.

'We will see what happens over the next six weeks.'

Some fine tweaking of the Man United squad could be beneficial, although Sir Alex will only spend this money he has if he feels he needs to.

Who do you need? The roster is already packed.

Give the youth a chance! There's no need to go splashing big money on big names, especially when you consider the state of the transfer maket ... still, when we've invested so much into our youth academy and buying great prospects e.g. Anderson who are yet to live up to their full potential and will only do so if given the chance. That chance of becoming the next Ronaldinho will only be slimmed by the arrival of a Sneijder or Ozil and perhaps the player may even be sold and end up filling his full potential elsewhere.

Giving youth a chance but it is a huge risk. Look at Arsenal. We can't keep relying on Giggs and Scholes nor even Carrick. We need another midfielder and Ozil or Steven Defour would do nicely!

I understand it's a big risk Deon, but im of the opinion that we should atleast take the risk and if it doesn't quite work out then invest.

By the time you decide whether it's working or not a) the window will close and B) the Glazers will have spirited the money off to stash in their little pot at the end of the rainbow.
27/07/2010 22:18:00
whether the Glazers will still be in charge by then fcb is debatable, all those unsold season tickets, replica shirts, etc etc must really be hurting their pockets. I just hope the next owners we get aren't so greedy.
27/07/2010 22:47:00
TFN7 - Those unsold tickets and shirts also do hurt the club. In my opinion, I really don't see the Glazers leaving anytime soon. If they leave, they'll feel like cowards but either way, something's got to give!
27/07/2010 23:11:00
If you harm the balance sheet it might encourage the Glazers to pull out, but who will purchase a dwindling asset? You really are damned if you do, damned if you don't on this one. Personally I'm rather bored with the whole affair and couldn't care less if you swap one debt-ridden owner for 40 debt-ridden red knights. And there is no rich tycoon* about to ride to your rescue either, as Michel Platini can't be seen to be a hypocrite (even though we all know he is) by condoning a huge takeover and resultant spending by a red tycoon* when he has been so vehemently opposed to Abramovich and Sheikh Mansour. The rags won't disappear, they are too big for that, but I do have mys suspicions that you will have a fairly mediocre period for the foreseeable future, a la Liverpool. To be honest, it will probably be the best thing that's happened to both your club and to top flight football as a whole for ages.

fcb - The thing is I wouldn't want a rich tycoon* spraying money about like your owners. Money you don't deserve, money you've done NOTHING for. That is why Platini is losing it and I have to agree with him. I'd rather we obtained our money ourselves which we have done and continue to do contrary to popular belief.
28/07/2010 02:51:00
Money we don't deserve? Hahaha! Careful you don't fall off your moral high horse you jealous little man, it's a long way down.
